Sasakawa USA Forum Issue No. 5
The “Abenomics Acceleration Diet” opened in September with passage of the TPP as one of their goals. Will TPP be ratified in this Diet session? It is difficult to predict, but the Abe administration has made TPP and passage of its implementing bills a high priority. The Diet debate will surely be heated, and among the contentious issues will not only be TPP’s impact on Japan and its agriculture industry but also the status of ratification in the United States.
